Act on it

To reach any goal you choose, it’s really not that complicated or even all that difficult. It is mainly a matter of acting on it. One way or another, action is what will make the difference. Action is what will take you to where you want to go, and action is what you can surely do.

If you feel frustration along the way, don’t let yourself get bogged down in it. Decide to turn the energy of your frustration into positive action. If you become worried about what could happen, there’s a great way to get beyond that worry. Take the actions necessary to make sure that whatever you’re worried about cannot and does not happen.

If one path becomes blocked, don’t spend a lot of time and energy complaining or regretting or feeling sorry for yourself. Instead, find another path and get yourself on it, for it is surely there.

The difference between those who merely wish and those who actually arrive is always action. Act on it, with persistence, with commitment, with positive purpose, and it will be.
